22nd June Laying Up of Old Royal British Legion Branch Standard

At 3.00pm on Saturday 22nd June a unique service will take place at St Paul’s – the ceremonial Laying Up of the old Nice-Monaco Branch Standard of the Royal British Legion.

Nothing similar will have taken place in the region since 1929 when the standard was first dedicated only ten years after the end of World War One.

During the service a new Branch Standard will be dedicated, and the Branch Standard Bearer charged with its safekeeping. There will be hymns, readings along with the Exhortation, Last Post and Reveille.

Refreshments will be served afterwards in the English Library. Everyone is welcome to the service and the Chaplain would be very happy to talk to anyone interested in joining the Nice -Monaco Branch of the Royal British Legion.
